Meet Stellaria Media

Nothing says "I love You" like the gift of fresh flowers!

Imagine my surprise and delight when today, I was the proud recipient of this arrangement! YUP! I was chosen by the four little darlins I was chaperoning today to receive this delightful gift.

Is it the promise of blooms in this arrangement that thrilled my heart so? I think not! It was the bloom in the hearts of the youngins' that gave them to me! The bloom of initiating love, kindness, giving, and selflessness.
Through this gift of love, I was reminded that the context of a situation and the heart motive behind it means everything! A heart motive can make the most beautiful person ugly and the ugliest person the most beautiful.
Because you see my friends, Stellaria Media is nothing more than a common weed. A common weed that was beautiful to me because of the pure loving intent behind it!


  1. That is so sweet! Oh how it warms your heart when your little darlings take the time to think of their mommies. My favorite part is the fact that they are truly excited and thrilled that they are doing something so sweet. I love it!

  2. This reminds me of an Annie Moses Band song called Mama's Gentle Way. I can't find the lyrics anywhere online, but part of the song goes something like, "She never mentioned they were only weeds."

  3. Oh my, they pick weeds at your house too! I have some in a cup in my kitchen right now, and they are lovely!! :) Thank you for loving on them while I rested, you are such a blessing to me! <3
